Alpina don't tune for outright performance. They turn up the luxury and add power with subtle aero and those wheels that they've been using for years. That's their formula.
Taylor Garry Feb 28, 2013
But more separated
Taylor Garry Feb 28, 2013
Its more of like what AMG to mercedes is
Nodnarb Ydil Feb 28, 2013
Somewhat I think. RUF is its own manufacturer. I thought Alpina was just a tuning firm. One with good relation to BMW. They are probably similar to where M used to be back in the 80's or so.
Oscar Galvan Feb 28, 2013
So is Alpina to BMW what RUF Is to Porsche??
Jacob Burford Feb 28, 2013
I think I'm one of the few that likes the new 3-Series front end!
Vinny Coppola Feb 28, 2013
I think most BMWs are ugly except the new 6 series grand coupe, man that thing is gorgeous!
Noah Roberts Feb 28, 2013
Nothing radically different
Scuttle Buttocks Feb 28, 2013
That looks very nice.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 28, 2013
Hate to say this but even the 2014 IS350 has a better front than this car
James Salaba Feb 28, 2013
At nxs everyone is entitled to opinion so there is no need to be rude! I'm fan of vintage and 90's car! To me m5 or m6 is nothing more then toy gadget on wheels! So it doesn't matter what company will tune it coz I still won't like it! Sorry bro!
Paul Dickey Feb 28, 2013
Mature, call me retarded because my opinion and taste is different than yours. Grow up.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Feb 28, 2013
Yea BMW has ZERO$ in maintenance for the first 50,000 miles/ 4years. That includes brake discs/pads, oil changes and the usual warranty stuff
Max Laino Feb 28, 2013
I think alpina should be like a bmw ///M black series.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 28, 2013
Not a fact
Elias Harb Feb 28, 2013
The 3series has the best driving dynamics in its class.
Dylan Bruder Feb 28, 2013
Not for me don't like the 3 series much though I did drive an 07 335i yesterday and it was pretty fun I'll admit
Paul Dickey Feb 28, 2013
Not a fan. BMW's just keep getting uglier.
Author Norman R. Colson Feb 28, 2013
Nice but not worth the maintenance costs, lol
Brittany Sawyer Feb 28, 2013
Love how the headlights connect with the grilles
James Salaba Feb 28, 2013
Definitely not!
Description: Alpina, for the uninitiated, sort of straddles the divide between aftermarket tuner and works performance division, enjoying a measure of factory support in its efforts. It also often applies its enha...

Judging from how quick the 335i is .. I'm guessing these are whp.. Correct me if im wrong
Nodnarb Ydil Feb 28, 2013
The article says they have close factory support. So I would assume they don't want to step on the M3's toes.
Tin Nguyen Feb 28, 2013
16 shy of the out going v8 m3? From what I remember the current v8 m3 only has 414hp.
Raymond Reynoso Feb 28, 2013
Exclusivity. It's an Alpina B3 after all.
Chris Gaines Feb 28, 2013
possible triple tutbo
Chris Gaines Feb 28, 2013
the new m3, unfortunately, will also have a TTI6 :(
Kyle Rawn Feb 28, 2013
TTI6 sorry
Kyle Rawn Feb 28, 2013
So someone help me out here. Why would someone buy this over a M3? Because they want the TTV6 or something?

It's not bad
Raymond Reynoso Feb 28, 2013
Most German brands limit it to 155, probably another reason to buy an Alpina.
Jakub Migalski Feb 28, 2013
I wonder how much this car will cost. Is it even coming to the U.S.?
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Feb 28, 2013
190mph is freaking crazy! I want one!
Yasser Zahabi Feb 28, 2013
Harrison you want it to have 500? I think it has more than enough .. M3 is about the handling more .. Let AMG have more straight line 00mph
Harrison Phillips Feb 28, 2013
404hp is so low! I know people who are getting 450 out of an 09 335i. BMW should stop holding back
Tara Fitria Feb 28, 2013
The 80's called, they want their pin striping back.
Leonardo Santana Feb 28, 2013
How much will it cost ?
Drew Humphrey Feb 28, 2013
Alpina wheels look great
Miko Reginella Feb 28, 2013
Needs drilled rotors
Mike Conrad Feb 28, 2013
Love Alpina wheels
Vinny Coppola Feb 28, 2013
To me the last good looking BMW was the 2001 7 series, like the James Bond car (besides the 6 series grand coupe)
Scuttle Buttocks Feb 28, 2013
This looks quality, James just sees lines and thinks that the cars gonna fall apart. Lol...
Zaire Wilkins Feb 28, 2013
Lmao@ NXS first off ive been designing cars my whole life ive got a portfolio. So i know ugly when i see it
Daniel Eads Feb 28, 2013
I'm really getting tired of the "if this was a Kia no one would care" argument. It's a car deserving of the hype, get over it.
Paul Dickey Feb 28, 2013
Chill out. We don't like the way it looks big deal buddy. That just leaves more for you to enjoy. Damn grow up
James Salaba Feb 28, 2013
I would never buy sedan but if I had to I'll take this over BMW in heartbeat! At least I can look at it unlike BMW!
Zaire Wilkins Feb 28, 2013
They didnt put much effort in designing the new 3 series
James Salaba Feb 28, 2013
Wouldn't buy one even if I could! Rather get m3e46 which is the last good looking BMW!!!
Harrison Phillips Feb 28, 2013
James bet u couldn't afford one of these in a million years buddy.
Ricky Austin Bride Feb 28, 2013
Ya James I don't know where you're getting that from.
Oscar Galvan Feb 28, 2013
How does it look like someone just put this together with what he found? It looks well put, and IS well put.
James Salaba Feb 28, 2013
That's the problem coz I have clean taste! And most people like this just because is a BMW. If that was Kia or Hyundai no one would care!
Gray Conron Feb 28, 2013
James you have no taste
James Salaba Feb 28, 2013
Looks like someone put that together from whatever he found!
